The Man Cold

A quick note: all my kvetching about Ken is (usually) in good spirits and always has his approval. But let’s be honest, the way men act when they’re sick or ailing is funny. Check out this obnoxious video: (You’ve probably already seen this. I just happen to be a good two years behind the rest […]

Once in a Lifetime

Isn’t it funny how you and your spouse can have an entire conversation without actually remembering it?  I’m not sure if this is due to the inevitable brain damage that accompanies years of sleep deprivation or if there are some crafty aliens out there who like to pick-pocket our brains while we’re sleeping.  Around here, […]

Playing Chicken with the Laundry

My husband has a strange affliction: he’s physically unable to complete a load of laundry.

Let’s Make a Deal

First, let me start by saying how glad I am that I don’t have a hubby who plays golf all weekend.  I know there are plenty of women out there whose hubbies are gone all weekend, every weekend, doing their own thing.  I could never be one of those women, and god help me, if […]

Good Cop, Bad Cop

It’s no secret that I’m the bad cop in our family, the one who’s always trying to keep some sort of order in the house, make sure the kids don’t kill each other, etc.  In fact, I come from a family of bad cops; I’m pretty sure it’s in our DNA.  But it’s definitely not […]
